  1. One of the old antiquarians (writing in the JRSAI) also identifies James – who made the Dingle agreement with the Emperor – as an unmitigated disaster for his own people. He took war to the Muskerry MacCarthys and the Waterford me almost immediately he assumed the earldom.

  2. Hi Gerald,

    1. I notice that these surnames are FitzJohn, FitzThomas. Were these people still Fitzgeralds?
    2. how could the new Earl be more dangerous to the Desmonds themselves, if he himself was the Earl of Desmond?
